NATURE CONNECTS: San Antonio Botanical Garden using Lego bricks to connect kids with nature

Lego bricks and nature. That's how the San Antonio Botanical Garden is educating kids the rest of the year with their new Nature Connects exhibit.

The San Antonio Botanical Garden is using Lego bricks this weekend to connect people with nature.

Saturday is the grand opening of an interactive experience that the whole family can enjoy.

“Nature Connects” features art with Lego bricks. The 38 acres of breathtaking natural scenery at the botanical gardens will feature astonishing Lego masterpieces that have to be seen to be believed.

“The artist says he took anywhere from 20-40,000 pieces per sculpture, so about half a million total Lego bricks for the Nature Connects exhibit,” said Connie Swann, the director of marketing for the San Antonio Botanical Garden.

The Brooklyn-based artist named Sean Kinney claims to be a professional kid. You can see his work on display until the end of the year, December 31.
